Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: Ahh … the election is in full swing, and the politicians are out there buying our votes. Whether it is with increased taxes — but only on other people — or better yet, lower taxes for all, free child care or free college, the politicians are buying our votes. This is as it should be...
To the Editor: My husband and I planted a pear tree four years ago in our backyard. We were told that it would take at least three years to get any pears on it. Last year we got two pears. This year the tree had between two to three dozen pears on it. We went out in the evening on Aug. 15 to look...
To the Editor: After many months of listening to activists, politicians and the media, I ask myself: Are they saying what they believe? And can I believe what they are saying? Activists want to save the planet. How? We can’t save ourselves. Atheists want Christ removed from Christmas. Isn’t that...
To the Editor: The Luverne Area Chamber and CVB has successfully completed the 2016 Rock River Beerfest on Saturday, Aug. 20.  With over 120 profiles of craft beer and wines, there were abundant flavors and tastes for everyone to enjoy. The day might have seemed flawless to the people who attended...
To the Editor: Maybe it’s just me, but I think farmers are all kicking each other while they’re down. The family of a close personal friend of mine is struggling to keep their dairy afloat, and loan payments are sucking up their savings. According to Minnesota Public Radio, the same thing is...
To the Editor: I spent last week working in downtown Luverne and was amazed to see all the walking traffic. Whether it was the dad pushing a baby stroller, the postal worker, a day care provider taking her children on an adventure, customers heading to downtown stores or businesses , others heading...
To the Editor: On August 4 you ran an article on Sharkee’s (which was condemned) and Dave Halverson pleading not having enough time to fix the problems. A long time while in operation, he didn’t care about the sewer problems, mold, food or lack of upkeep. He had no pride of ownership. It’s all...
To the Editor: I am writing this letter to encourage all voters in the first and third county commissioner districts to be sure to vote in the upcoming primary.  It is very important that those of us in agriculture maintain a balanced county board. Everyone in Rock County is affected by agriculture...
To the Editor: Luverne where were you? I attended the Badlands House Band concert Friday night, July 29, at the Rock County Fair. The band was awesome, and I met some people I haven't seen in a long time. I had a great time. But I was very disappointed with the attendance for a band of this caliber...
To the Editor: Have you been watching the Middle East lately? Boom! Over there they brainwash their kids to be suicide fighters and bombers. Over here we just brainwash our kids to be socialists. I hope our kids realize how fortunate they are and also realize how much we really wish them the best...
